Big Island, HI Fish ID Help Needed

Can you please identify this fish? I could not find it in your fish guide in your Big Island Snorkeling Guide eBook.

Taken while snorkeling at Kahalu'u Beach Park on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Thanks!

Parrotfish

What you have is a Bullethead Parrotfish in it's juvenile phase. Sorry it was not in the Big Island Snorkeling Guide eBook fish guide.

If you scroll down the page at this link you will find a description and picture, along with a picture of the initial phase. Also, the book Reef Fish Identification - Tropical Pacific has pictures of all of the phases of the Bullethead Parrotfish.
